Peru Here I Come!
O.K. so for a long time I have felt that God wanted me to do something bigger in my life. Raising 3 boys is a lot, but I felt that God wanted me to spread His word somehow. In the church bulletin I saw info about a Peru mission trip. A trip that would have participants hiking the Andes Mountains and handing out Bibles in small villages. Wow!! How cool would that be. And, that was it. I mentioned it to Andy, and he thought I was crazy. So I went about my days being a mom. I started reading my bible more and praying. I started meditating in the Word and listening. What an awesome experience that is. The first few times I sat quiet and listened, I just kept hearing, "Be still and know that I am God". O.K. I thought, you are in control. It took me a while to actually give control over to God. But once I did He made it very clear that Peru was the trip for me. Through Isaiah 43, I learned that He will protect me and equip me. Have you let something go and given it to God? Pray about that!
